Warren Vache is in excellent form throughout this interesting set. The cornetist duets with guitarist Joe Puma on his "Bix Fix" and with bassist Michael Moore on "Buddy Bolden's Blues." Several songs match him with trombonist Joel Helleny and tenor-saxophonist Houston Person (most notably "Eternal Triangle," "Struttin' With Some Barbecue," "All Blues" and "Joy Spring") and a few numbers showcase him with a quartet. Throughout, Vache is heard at the top of his game, adding a swing sensibility to music ranging from dixieland to hard bop. Recommended.
